After years of working your tail off, you’ve finally earned that promotion. There’s just one problem: The job is located halfway across the country. As you prepare for the big move, it’s important to make sure you select a home moving company you can trust. To help you decide which company is right for you, the folks at 1-800-PACK-RAT have put together a list of tips which we’ve shared below. Congratulations on the new job and good luck with your move!

Know the Rules: If you are moving to a different state, be sure the company you have hired is registered with the Department of Transportation. This license allows the moving company to cross state lines.

Ask Around: According to 1-800-PACK-RAT, the best way to choose a local home moving company is to ask for recommendations from your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors. It’s also important to do some research on your own.

Get the Best Rate: It’s always a good idea to compare prices and get quotes from at least three different companies before making a decision. In most cases, rates are lower in the middle of the month and on weekdays. Also, keep an eye out for coupons or other discounts but be sure to check sites such as Angie’s List or the BBB for customer complaints. Sometimes a deal is too good to be true.

As I always say, it's important to do your research before you start moving! Go and meet the managers even and make sure that you can get a transparent quotation. And besides everything else, make sure that you are properly covered for content insurance so you aren't stranded in a new country with nothing!

I think the best tip to give is to just ask around. Get people who have had a specific service and ask if they were good to them. I noticed that I was able to get a good experience this way for a lot of things and not just moving companies.

I think that the best thing that you can do when hiring a company is ask around for referrals. People tend to be honest with their experiences with past companies. If it went well, they want their friends to have the same great experience that they did. If it didn't, they'll warn your about the company. I've never had a bad experience when I took the advice from a friend.
